Is it worth trying to fix smoking pixel 2?
I had a pixel 2 which started failing to take a charge a couple days before it completely failed on me. I was running the Android ten beta and kinda thought maybe that was the problem, so when I took it off the beta and reset it, and the phone started charging again, I thought I had solved it. It stopped taking a charge again and all of a sudden I smelled something burning, I took the cable out and sure enough the smell came from the port. I took it for a repair and told them that I smelled smoke, but this time when they plugged it in it really started smoking and they told me to take it up with Google. Unfortunately I bought the phone off a reseller on eBay, and it had almost been a year since the purchase, so not much I could do. I of course have another phone now, but stumbled across the phone while cleaning and was wondering if I should bother repairing it myself? What could the problem have been, battery, charging port, or is there probably some amount of damage not worth tinkering with?
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
